Rare Orange Yamaha U7E motorcycle project - as is

$500.00 $400.00

Small motorcycle similar to a Honda Cub, but 2 stroke. We were going to sell it to a friend who worked on it here but he never finished the project, paid for it, or took it with him. As I recall, it has had a top end rebuild, new rear tire and tube, and a new battery installed. I believe it was running but maybe had low compression and/or the battery would drain between uses preventing spark.  

No warranty on as is mopeds.

All vehicles purchased online will be held at our flagship store on Michigan Avenue.

Pick up appointments can be made through the Facebook scheduler.

National shipping can be arranged through U-Ship at the buyer’s expense. We expect it to be $200-$300 depending on location.

Description

About selling “as is” project mopeds in 2020:

Detroit Moped Works has always felt confident profiting from our wonderful work, selling refurbished or rebuilt mopeds that we could stand behind and sell with a warranty.  

As a matter of principle, Detroit Moped Works has always been opposed to “flipping” mopeds, or making money off of selling non-running mopeds, project mopeds, parts mopeds, and/or “as is” mopeds. 

That said, due to what the media refers to as “these strange times” we are not able to get bikes built for sale this season. Further, we are repeatedly seeing “as is” mopeds selling on the peer to peer market for 2-3 times what we consider “Normal Market Rate.” For these two reasons we have decided to get some projects out of our shop and in the hands of folks who can hopefully get more bikes on the road.

Most of these mopeds will be priced above what we consider “normal market rate,’ but below the high prices we are seeing as the “new normal.” In the time honored tradition of “flipping,” we will be giving the most brief description possible, not promising anything of the individual vehicles, but promising you that you will have a wonderful time working on and learning about your new toy motorcycle! Or maybe it just sits as wonderful decor in your Man Cave or She Shed. Once you buy it, it is out of our hands and yours to enjoy!  

Prices are firm / sales are final / bikes are as is. 

Pick up appointments can be made through the Facebook scheduler.

Payments accepted: Cash, Credit/Debit card, or PayPal.
